Possibly a critter or rodent has made a new home in your heater case? Pull off some ductwork and check.

Use an ammeter to see if the motor current draw is within specs. If higher you may have some shorting of compressor windings and that will use up more juice and create more heat (and smell) and perhaps the clixon is shutting unit down till it cools off. And your condenser is squeaky clean, right?

Hi switched my sewing machine on today and burming from piece that goes into machine smells like the motor.

Switch off the power and smell closer to the motor , is you feel the motor was running hot or is still heating up without a movement then it is possible that the motor is faulty.
Make sure there is no friction on the mechanism or the drive. If so remove motor and test on direct voltage to confirm if there is any issues with the switch.

2004 Mercury Mountaineer-Horrible smell coming from AC/Heat system....does not smell like coolant.......I have had chipmunks in the engine compartment. Is there an outside air inlet with a dead chipmunk?

This is not good. Your problem is worse than the Squirrels that put Walnuts in my A/C ducts and shorted my controls. The critters can chew holes in the plastic vent covers to gain access.

Your critters could have pooped and peeed in your Ductwork. This may be covered by your Comprehensive Insurance as it is a Health Hazard. Call your Agent, really, call your Agent.

I believe your Series of vehicle has an In-cabin Airfilter. This may help. Ford does carry products to Sterilize the A/C ducts which will help. Although the products were intended for Mold and things growing in the Ducts.

A dead Chipmunk is a possibility. So is a cooked animal on the motor. Good luck on this, about all you can do is change the Incabin filter and decontaminate. A Dealer can take apart the ductwork and get to th heart of the matter.

I had a chipmunk climb into my vent and into the dryer. It was ran without knowing the critter was inside, now the dryer over heats. The top right side and the line where the wires run get so very hot. ...

Something is still blocking the air flow to the outside, or the motor is burned out. Pull your lint filter out and turn the dryer on. You should be able to hear and feel air rushing through the lint filter hole. If no air is coming out the blower motor is porbably burned out. If something actually stops the blower wheel from turning it will quickly burn the motor out. Remove the back panel to access the fan motor. Be sure to unplug the dryer before removing any panels. If air is flowing at the lint filter, your vent line is stopped up.

Foul odor from beneath the frige!

You have a couple possibilities. Either something spilled in the frig and ran down into the drip pan or you have a dead critter under there. The pan is not removable and cleaning it is a pain. take a good look under there from the back and the front.

Something dead inside the heat/ac fan

Remove the blower motor and see what's inside the cage. You might want to wear disposable rubber gloves in case you find a dead mouse or something. You may also need a mirror and flashlight to look around in the blower opening to find the critter. After it's all cleaned out you can spray some lysol disinfectant in the hole, on the evaporator fins, and the blower cage to remove some of the odor.

Hoover Condensing dryer malfunction

Hi Mike,

The motor probably has experienced locked rotor current and fried the windings. Of course the capacitor could have shorted. If you can find it, look at the capacitor and if the can looks like it's lid is swollen or pooched out, then go for replacing the Capacitor. If you remove the motor and smell the case and it smells burned, you motor is shot. It does not have to lock down to be bad. The windings do not rotate in an AC motor.
